1 made it 1/2 into week 1 before i pulled the Achilles tendon in my ankle.
So i have been only walking as i try to heal it and then re start week 1.

I am so mad! I felt very proud of myself for starting it.

I have a 5k this sunday ( that i had planned to walk when i signed up and will still do that. I will just tape the tendon and wear my brace).
Any tips on how not to pull the tendon? I currently weigh 285, but work out 7 days a week. everything from weights to pool to zumba.

I had already signed up for 5 more 5ks before i hurt myself, and will still do them even if i have to walk it. BUt is it ok to stop and restart until i get it right?

Now that I've gotten through Easter, I'm ready to start again.

The first time I did this I had a 10K in mind... It was my first run EVER... and before deciding to do it, I had never been able to run before...The good news was that I did train, but not too conistantly and really made it a Belinda program. Where I was able to "finish" the 10K... the next day I was so darn exhausted, I quite running for a while, a LONG while.

But then a friend asked me to join her in a 5K and I said yes. There wasn't anytime to train, like a week, so I did ok... Afterward, I was even more exhausted than I had been after the 10K.

It took me 2 days to recover and feel like not sleeping all day and as a normal person again. It was quite the wake up call.

Now, a couple of months since that 5K, I'm ready to start again, but this time I want to do the couch to 5K a healthy way. I hope at the end of this one, I can stay awake afterward.

Pray. Hope. Don't worry.
Belinda

I am restarting week one also. I Did wk 1 D-1 on Wed......I did not have the training and events for the week mapped out very well. I realize I need to start my Wk on Sunday afternoon in order to fit the days in right. I started again today....it was harder than the first start.


All things are possible...maybe not easy...but possible and worthwhile!!! I believe in ME!

Congratulations!! Consistency is the key. You will get there! What I did because I am like you, I start something and then am not consistent with it. So I mark my calendar for MWF those were my "TRAINING" days. I set that time aside and stuck to it. I completed the full program! Yes, along the way, there were some burps but I came back and the best part was, I ran my 5k on the 18th year my dad passed away! You can do this! Don't quit and each week you will be impressed as to how far you can go and how better your endurance is coming along.

I won't let fear clip my wings and tell me how high I can fly!

Finally worked up the nerve to restart after I couldn't complete more than one interval of week two. I think running inconsistently had a lot to do with it--the "week one" runs were pretty spaced out. Hopefully I can stick to it this time. Consistency has been a huge issue for me, even though I've been at this healthy lifestyle thing for almost a year. I have just enough time to safely get up to my running goals in order to be ready for the cross-country team in September.
